Developing you people skills and networking is a big part of your success.
The relationships around you will have a tremendous impact on the way that you do business.
Most businesspeople know that they have to network but what is the most effective way to network. If you go out to a seminar or business event should you just speak to every person that has on a blue shirt and red tie?
Networking is not the end of business it is more like the beginning
Some people think that just because they got the business card of the keynote speaker that their work is finished. Through networking at social events we meet people that will help you to get closer to your goals. But the majority of people will not follow up or make any attempts to build a relationship with that person. Most of the time this comes from a place of selfishness. If your motives are just about you and your business doesn’t provide a true value to others than you will only be conserned about yourself and miss the biggest part of networking.
